A Local Law to amend the administrative code of the city of New York, in relation to taxi and limousine commission review of crashes.
 
Be it enacted by the Council as follows:
Section 1.  Chapter 5 of title 19 of the administrative code of the city of New York is amended by adding a new section 19-540 to read as follows:
§19-540 Review of crashes. a. Following any crash involving a driver licensed by the commission while operating a vehicle licensed by the commission where critical injury or death resulted to one or more persons, the commission shall, upon notification of such crash, review the results of the police department's investigation at or before the conclusion of such department's investigation.  The commission shall further review the fitness of such driver to operate a vehicle licensed by the commission and take any enforcement action that it determines appropriate, unless such driver's commission issued license has been suspended, in which case such review may occur prior to the lifting of such suspension.  The commission may summarily suspend the commission issued license of such driver while any fitness review or enforcement action is pending, consistent with the rules of the commission regarding summary suspensions. For purposes of this section, "critical injury" shall mean any injury determined to be critical by the emergency medical service personnel responding to any such incident. This section shall not limit in any way the commission's authority to summarily suspend a driver's commission issued license for other reasons.
b. On or before February 1, 2015 and quarterly thereafter, the commission shall provide to the speaker of the council and shall place on the commission's website, a written report detailing how many crashes the commission reviewed pursuant to subdivision a of this section in the prior quarter, how many summary suspensions occurred, and enforcement actions taken by the commission following such review.
     §2.  This local law shall take effect ninety days following enactment into law.
